And If This Happened To You????

Da LawI just had to ask the police officer: "And if this happened to you?"

During my lunch hour yesterday I was at home at the table and I get a phone call from a certain delivery company

FlubEx

and they said they were just at my door, knocked, rang the bell, and no one answered so I could go to the FlubEx Office across town and get my package.

That seemed strange being I was literally 10' from the door.

So I drove to FlubEx Office and sure enough the package was there. They asked for some ID and I showed them my drivers license. Ah-Ha, no wonder I didn't hear the door, it wasn't my address on the package label BUT there was my name and cell phone number on the package. FlubEx wouldn't let me have the package or even open it up at their counter (BTW I was not expecting any kind of package either). Without thinking I left and did not take a picture of the package or note the address.

When I got to the office I thought that was dumb of me (not to get that address) so I called FlubEx and they were unwilling to give me the address. I asked if I came down with a police officer would they then give me the address. They said if a police officer came down they would give the officer the address.

So I called the police and I explained that I was concerned that someone was using my name and phone number to receive packages. Could these packages be from the theft of a credit card I was unaware of? Could someone be shipping illegal substances using my name? 

The officer, a detective, refused to see the logic in my request and just flat out rejected it. I asked her "and if this happened to you?".... she did not respond so I guess it wouldn't bother her or any one on our police force if people used their names to receive mysterious packages. I guess they wouldn't even investigate to see who's address that was on the package with their name on it.

Hi Kat Palmiotti . The address was no where near mine. I have emailed the chief of police with a link to this post and I like your idea to go higher up the line at FlubEx so I will carry that out this morning as well.

That's how I feel Grant Schneider but I will be very vocal if there are charges on my credit card.

Sheila Anderson the call was just to get my package at FlubEx and that seems to be the only legitimate thing that surrounds this mystery.

Brian England the attitude at FlubEx surprised me as well being it was obvious that there service may be being used to further illegal activity. There unwillingness to let me open a package addressed to me, with my phone number on it, in front of them makes no sense at all.

I would also have a concern with these happenings.

The delivery company isn't really doing their job either.

Bob- you might consider putting a hold on your credit (see Marte Cliff 's recent post) , check your recent bank activity, and I don't know how many credit cards you have, but I'd check with them too.

I think you should go over some people's heads - boh at Flub Ex and at the police department. If they are all too stupid to see this as a threatening situation, they deserve to be reprimanded.

Do go on line to each of your credit cards to see if there's a charge you didn't make. If so, call them immediately!

You might also check your credit reports to see if "You" have opened a new account at "Your" new address.

And then, yes - freeze your credit report.

I agree Vern Eaton and at this point neither the PD or FlubEx have done a thing about it to the best of my knowledge.

Kathy Streib thanks for directing me to Marte's post. I have contacted all my credit cards and we could not find an unaccountable charge. Of course I've heard of thieves opening cc accounts in your name and racking up a bill which you would never know until the cc company comes after you.

Thanks for the great advice Marte Cliff . I've gone to the top of the Minot Police Department but I need to climb the chain at FlubEx. I am concerned that maybe someone has opened an account in my name as you mention.

If they have, it should show up on your credit report. If nothing else, you should probably alert the reporting agencies. They'll put a fraud alert on your account.

I would definitely be monitoring your active credit cards, as it does sound like someone got ahold of your info.  How scary!

Nothing new Kasey & John Boles . I'm really surprised I have not heard from my friend who is the Minot Chief of Police. I guess the Minot Police Dept really doesn't give a rats ass.
